What makes the difference between an ordinary and an extraordinary person?

It is the personality. Our personality determines our attitude and success in life. Albert Einstein said "We should take care not to make the intellect our God; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality." Swami Vivekananda emphasized on developing strong personality having muscles of iron and nerves of steel.
